World Class Technology

The evolution of measurement techniques over the last 40 years in the Oil & Gas industry from grab samples being tested in a lab to the use of on-line analyzers was the first step in providing information that was beneficial to operators and oil companies.

Unfortunately they suffered from problems relating to fouling, reliability, accuracy and constant maintenance, leading to a lack of confidence in these analyzers as a dependable solution.

The introduction of Advanced Sensors revolutionary oil in water analyzers in 2005 was a step change in technology.

The EX-100 was the first maintenance free analyzer to provide continuous uninterrupted accurate and repeatable measurement of oil concentrations. Oil companies could now meet their regulatory oil in water discharge requirements with confidence.

For the first time, reliable real time data enabled them to take the next step and improve the efficiency of their separation processes, saving money and resources, and reducing downtime.

Following the adoption of this technology standard, in collaboration with customers and other industry experts, Advanced Sensors has developed a wide portfolio of maintenance free products, all with complete remote access capabilities.

  • Oil in water discharge management and prevention of potentially harmful upsets with the earliest possible detection ensuring you meet environmental goals.
  • Process control and management of your separators using the dual in-line probe oil in water analyzers, simultaneously measuring oil concentration at both inlet and outlet.
  • Minimise the disruption of solids using our microscopy solution to provide real-time particle size analysis, enabling you to take account of TSS (total suspended solids).
  • Optimise your chemical injection by monitoring oil droplet size and oil concentration with one combined video microscopy and fluorescence analyzer.
  • The Mass Spectrometer will identify and measure, in real time, individual components such as BTEX (Benzene, Toluene, Ethyl benzene and Xylene), VOCs (volatile organic compounds), H2S (Hydrogen Sulphide), as well as individual hydrocarbons such as Ethene, Propene, Butene, etc .

Building on these established strong technology platforms, Advanced Sensors development continues:

  • A new maintenance-free oil in water monitor for use in a non-hazardous environment has been developed to meet the needs of the marine and waste water market.
  • Leveraging tried and tested technologies; a subsea analyzer is under development to meet the new and challenging demands of the subsea revolution.
